The Sisters of Albano

Maria and Anina are sisters who live with their father in the hills of Lake Albano in Italy. Over time, the young Anina falls in love with an outlaw named Domenico, who is a sworn enemy of Napoleon and his army. But when Anina gets arrested and the French army close in on Domenico, Maria must fight for those she loves.

'The Sisters of Albano' (1828) is a short story about war, revolution and romance. It was written by the English author Mary Shelley who is best known for her highly acclaimed novel ‘Frankenstein’ (1818).

Mary Shelley (1797–1851) was an English author and travel writer best known for her ground-breaking Gothic novel ‘Frankenstein’ (1818). Considered one of the first true works of science-fiction, the book became an instant bestseller.
It has been adapted for TV, stage and film on many occasions, with Boris Karloff famously playing Frankenstein’s monster on screen in 1933. Other adaptations include ‘Mary Shelley's Frankenstein’ (1994) starring Kenneth Branagh and Robert De Niro and ‘Viktor Frankenstein’ (2015) starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy.
Shelley’s other novels include Valperga (1823), The Last Man (1826), Perkin Warbeck (1830), Lodore (1835), Falkner (1837) and the posthumously published Mathilde (1959). However, she will always be remembered as the creator of Frankenstein.
The book continues to influence filmmakers, writers and popular culture to this day, inspiring and terrifying new audiences the world over.
